By law, you must both go up to the location where they will issue a passport and both parents must sign a statement saying it is okay. If you have documentation that shows you are the custodial parent, you can have your child "red flagged" with the government and this way if he were to try to get a passport for your child they would have to notify you and then you can stop it.

In the US the non-custodial parent can leave if they choose, they cannot however take a minor child with them unless a court rules otherwise.

• This depends on your custody agreement, but I'm fairly certain a non-custodial parent needs permission. Just like a custodial parent will need permission depending on what the custody agreement states. I do know, however, that a custodial parent can get a passport without the permission of the non-custodial parent if he/she meets certain requirements. is that parent's name the only one on the birth cirtificate? Does that parent have sole LEGAL custody?

No the custodial parent has to have either the courts permission or the non-custodians permission.

yes, he\she should seek for permission from the parent.

I think so, however you will need the courts permission for the child to visit you and leave their home state.

There are many factors involved. In most cases the authorities will not allow a minor to leave the country without permission of the other parent.

A noncustodial parent can prevent the custodial parent from leaving the state with a baby or child. The court will decide if the custodial parent has just cause to leave the state.
